  • 9. COMPARATIVE STUDY BETWEEN OVERBALANCED AND UNDER BALANCED OIL DRILLING METHODS

    » ABSTRACT The technique used worldwide while drilling is known as overbalanced drilling. Which is defined as the drilling process where the hydrostatic pressure used exceeds the formation pressure. This is done with the main purpose of “killing” the well. However, there are numerous problems that accompany overbalanced drilling. Such problems are differential pipe sticking, loss of circ...Continue Reading »
